The fact that some Americans would be surprised to learn that the executive producer of a successful reality television series would be so bold as to alter the reality of a storyline for ratings is a little discouraging in itself. But blindly following the tabloids as the bearers of gospel truth is yet another reason why there should be some sort of IQ test associated with registering to vote.
The entire concept of reality television usually has about as much to do with reality as an animated movie about a world of Legos. They both do, however, make a lot of money for their creators.
The latest dish in the never-ending drama that is Keeping Up With The Kardashians is a report in US Weekly that claims Kardashian matriarch Kris Jenner as outraged by her soon-to-be ex-husband Bruce Jenner dating her friend of more than 20 years and sometime personal assistant Ronda Kamihira.
“She’s livid and embarrassed,” a source told the magazine. “She told him she thought it was inappropriate.”
The former Mrs. Kardashian is currently on tour promoting her new book and appeared on The Today show. Her cookbook was mentioned but talk quickly transitioned to the rumors about Bruce, his dating her BFF and another storyline on KUWTK that the former Olympic Gold Medalist is transitioning into a woman. “They’ve been saying that since the 70′s” shared Kris. “But he’s still the father of two of my children”.

Bruce Jenner’s new girlfriend is fake! Storyline is for ‘Keeping Up With The Kardashians,’ set up by Kris! http://t.co/VzjMkPXLYD

Now comes a story that was reported on Radar Online that the entire “Bruce Dating My BFF” was simply made up as a storyline to promote the series and her book tour. Surprise. “It’s purely false that they are seriously dating!” an insider told Radar. “Bruce suspects that the false rumors are coming from Kris’ camp, and knows it’s being used for the upcoming season of KUWTK.”
According to the story, Bruce caught on to the ruse while filming as he recognized Kris was doing this by the way she was acting toward him and the things she was saying when the cameras were on.
“During recent filming with Kris, the two argued about Bruce spending time with Ronda,” said their source. “It came out of nowhere, and Bruce immediately realized he had been set up. Kris is making a big deal of their friendship for the show.”
The friendship between Bruce and Kamahira is not “new” news. They have also known each other for almost 20 years as she has been a close family friend and her own daughters are quite close to Kendall and Kylie Jenner. They were spotted together along with Bruce’s son Brandon and his wife at an Elton John concert on October 4th.
This is not the first disclosure that episodes were scripted, edited or even completely fabricated when it came to Keeping Up With The Kardashians.
The house shown on episodes of the series is not even their real house or where the filming occurs. According to daughter Kim that is for “security purposes”.
When Kris promoted her FOX talk show with pictures of her holding a baby – which was meant to be Kim’s daughter North – it was eventually revealed that the baby was a stand-in.
Her daughter Kim’s infamous meltdown after Kris and sister Khloe toilet papered her house was admitted to have been scripted.
Kris herself has admitted to Carson Daly that reports of scenes they have faked can bother her. “After a while some things just get to you. 90 per cent of it is more or less BS.”
True or not, the entire saga has brought out yet another storyline to be discussed in the press and on television. In the words of the great playwright Oscar Wilde, “The only thing worse than being talked about is not being talked about.”
